Managing Human Resources in Africa


This volume addresses the shortage of knowledge about the nature, diversity and context of HRM in Africa and highlights the important trends and patterns that have been emerging on the continent.


Global hrm is a series of books edited and authored by some of the best and most well-known researchers in the field of human resource management. This series is aimed at offering students and practitioners accessible, coordinated, and comprehensive books in global hrm. To be used individually or together, these books cover the main bases of comparative and international hrm. Taking an expert look at an increasingly important and complex area of global business, this is a groundbreaking new series that answers a real need for serious textbooks on global hrm.

Several books in this series, Global hrm, are devoted to human resource management policies and practices in multinational enterprises. Some books focus on specific areas of hrm policies and practices, such as global leadership, global compensation, global staffing, and global labor relations. Other books address special topics that arise in multinational enterprises such as managing hr in cross-border alliances, the role of the hr profession, and the role of hr in multinational enterprises.

In addition to books on hrm in multinational enterprises, several other books in the series will adopt a comparative approach to understanding hrm. These books on comparative human resource management describe the hrm policies and practices found at the local level in selected countries in several regions of the world. the comparative books utilize a common framework that makes it easier for the reader to systematically understand the rationale for the hrm practices in different countries. This book, Managing hr in Africa, edited by Ken Kamoche, Yaw Debrah, Frank Horwitz, and Gerry Muuka, is the first of these comparative hr books. Featuring contributions from the experts, this book is organized by country and includes full chapters on countries across the length and breadth of Africa, from Tunisia and Libya in the north to South Africa and Botswana in the south; from Kenya and Tanzania in the east to Ivory Coast and Ghana in the west. This is the first book to tackle hrm across Africa on such a scale. We are optimistic that you will be as impressed as we are with this book.

This Routledge series, Global hrm, is intended to serve the growing market of scholars and practitioners who are seeking a deeper and broader understanding of the role and importance of human resource management in companies as they operate throughout the world. With this in mind, all books in the series provide a thorough review of existing . . .
